  4. Fill in as many details about yourself and your blog in this section.
  5. Add your pricing and any preferences that you have.

How To Earn Money On the Site:

  1. Advertisers will browse the site looking for blogs that fit their needs. If the advertiser is satisfied with your blog, they can make you an offer to write a review, and post it on your site. There are a few factors to consider before accepting the assignment.
    1. Is the price the advertiser is offer acceptable for the review he wants?
    2. Is the website you’re writing for popular or not?
    3. Does this website coincide with your niche?
    4. If the review isn’t in your niche it’s a bad idea to accept the job. Your audience visits your site to learn more about your niche and not read a review that has nothing to do with it.
    5. Make sure the advertiser wants an honest review from you. Don’t write a review claiming the product is wonderful if it isn’t. Always write an honest review of all your clients.
  2. The second option for making money on the site is by bidding on a job.
  3. The only bid on jobs that are in your niche and that will easily be read on your site.
  4. When bidding on a review, keep your price reasonable. This way you have a better chance of landing the job.

How Does the Company Pay You?

  1. The company pays you through PayPal.
  2. You’ll earn 50% of the money that you’ve been paid for writing the review. Therefore, if you earned $100 for your review, the company keeps $50 and pays you $50.
  3. Payments are sent out bi-weekly for the reviews the clients have approved.

Does the Company Have a Referral Program?

  1. The company offers two types of referrals. The first one is for advertisers and the second one is for bloggers.
  2. The payment varies depending on the referral you receive.
  3. The amount paid for your referrals isn’t that interesting at all. For example; if your referral earns $50 the company pays you $5. But if your referral earns $10,000 the company only pays you $50.
  4. If your referral is an advertiser you seem to earn a bit more. For example, if an advertiser spends $1 to $99 with the company, you’ll earn $5. But if they spend $10,000 with the company, you’ll earn $100.

Conclusion:

This is a legitimate site and has a good reputation online. Many advertisers work with this company because of their online reputation. If you’re a blogger and want to write sponsored reviews on your blog, this is a good site to work for. You can pick and choose the type of reviews you want to write and post on your blog. Furthermore, the company pays out twice a month so you don’t need to wait 30 days or longer to be paid for your work.

My Thoughts About the Company:

  1. This is a good company to work for. However, I don’t like the idea that they earn half of your money. I can see the company earning a percentage of what I make, but not 50%,
  2. At times the site is very picky about the posts you’ve written and posted on your site. Clients seem to change their minds in the middle of the job.
  3. I do like the idea that we have a week to complete the job.
  4. I think their referral program could pay a little better. An advertiser spends hundreds of dollars on this site and they are only willing to give you a small part of this.
  5. At times I feel the site is profiting from our work and earning more than we are. I don’t feel it is fair that we need to pay the site so much for finding the jobs.
  6. The company has a good reputation online; therefore they are making decent money. I feel like the company should reduce their payment from bloggers and only charge 20% instead of 50%.

Conclusion:

This is a legitimate website that will pay you to write reviews. The reviews are your own personal experiences with a product or service. The site has two different ways they will actually pay for your reviews. First, they will pay you a set price and second, they’ll buy your review at a bulk rate. The site has two other ways that you can earn money. One is for answering questions on the site and the other is for the number of likes you receive on your reviews.

My Personal Thoughts About the Company:

  1. The website is poorly designed and complicated to navigate around.
  2. It is difficult to find out where to write a review on the site.
  3. They have no online registration, and the only way to register is to write your first review.
  4. The first review I submitted to the company was accepted and paid. However, the company doesn’t often pay you full price for the review. Most reviews are purchased at the bulk rate. All the reviews I’ve submitted to the site have been purchased under their bulk rate deal.
  5. What I didn’t like about the company were the excuses they used to reject some of the reviews I’d written. They used my location, where I live, and told me that I should be writing reviews about here and not for other products and services.
  6. When you answer questions on the site, they don’t have any type of rules or state how to answer them. After spending your time finding and answering questions you’re given a warning. This means that they’ve rejected your answer, deleted it, and removed the payment from your account.
  7. No matter if you’ve answered only a question with a Yes or No answer they’ll find a way to delete your answer and deduct the money. They claim the answer was beneficial to the question.
  8. You’ll find one person on the site that answers any and all question. Therefore, if you try to answer the question a second time, your answer is deleted and the payment is deducted from your account.
  9. The site is hard to find the rules, they are written poorly, and the explanation of how they pay is totally complicated and not written clearly at all. Therefore, you have no idea if you need to have 10 paid reviews at the full price or you can have 10 paid revises at the bulk rate. No matter what, they require you to have 10 paid reviews before they’ll pay you for the reviews.
